Apply to be a mentor!

We are looking for early-career scientists (grads, postdocs, faculty) interested in mentoring opportunities to engage the public in the excitement of science! As a mentor you will have the opportunity to connect with teachers, K12 students and even families using virtual and social media. Virtual mentoring is a great way to connect with the public from the comfort of your office or home (cutting down on commute time leaving you more time to dedicate to your research and other activities). Learn more about our current programs here.
